Got two MEQ-5's now and looking at the SS versions. But maybe the 1A3 now. Kurt, have you the SS version in the past ? Look at the back: Thinking the API would make a nice Snare/ Kick center EQ and/or depending on the material, choose it over the tube when I'm using these for M/S, but just for center. Anyone reading this thread that has the SS version, please chime in and talk about it. I love these so much, I'd like to start a forum just on Pultecs lol. I wonder how the highs are? Sweet too? Not as, I suspect as the tube.
